1 June, 2023 seen 13Our family trip began in Tbilisi, where we picked up our child from QSI international school in Zurgovani village. From…
At the end of May 2021, we traveled Tbilisi - Batumi (and back) for the first time with an airplane. And let me say - this is the best option to travel between these two Georgian cities. In the past, I've tried a train, marshrutka, and private vehicle.
Flight is only 50 minutes and you don't feel tired not at all. i first hear about Vanilla Sky (back then it was called Service air) back in the Summer of 2014, when planned a trip to Mestia, but at the end in that year we traveled to Yerevan in Armenia instead of Mestia, because I find it complicated to book tickets online.
Now it was much easier and we were able to book flight some 2 weeks advance, paying GEL 125 per person one way (kids up to 3 year travel for free, if no seat is taken)
Tbilisi - Batumi flight by Vanilla sky with Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia
The Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia is a twin-turboprop commuter airliner, produced by Embraer of Brazil.
We booked a flight to Batumi Friday morning, left via Tbilisi international airport and returned back in Monday morning. Excellet. Great. Awesome. We had an awesome weekend in Batumi, with staying at 5-star Hilton hotel.
Vanilla Sky (also known as Service Air or AK-Air Georgia) is a privately owned airline headquartered in Tbilisi, Georgia, and based at Natakhtari, which was founded in 2008. The airline is part of "Service Air" Company, a subsidiary of Vanilla Sky International Tour Operator. Flights are subsidized by the state to increase mobility and tourism in Georgia with US$5.3 million as the reported amount that the airline was offered by the Georgian Airport Union.
The Bottom Line
I hope to use more domestic flights in Georgia. Speaking of this Batumi flight - this is just awesome. 125 GEL for a 50-minute flight. Save time, enjoy Batumi!
